Just saw a little paragraph in St John Kanty's Oct 13 bulletin that Father Ron's last Mass as Pastor is Oct 20. It didn't seem like a big deal in the bulletin. It could've been easily missed. Any rumors as to who will be taking over or will they be merged with another or possibly closed?

That Conference in the Falls brought in about 8750 dollars. How much did they pay to those priests? Was Fr. John Corapi part of that group?Where is the rest of the money?

This could well happen in the not too distant future. The Episcopal Church is trying this approach. Many religious orders have already carried this out. The Jesuits will merge ten provinces into three in the next few years. Quite a few dioceses are vacant. The Eparchy of Passaic is celebrating its 50th anniversary on November 10th, but still has no bishop, after 18months. Clergy morale is down and the Orthodox are laughing their heads off.(Orthodox church law usually demands that a bishop be appointed within 40 days,but there have been exceptions.)

Currently, there are nine vacant Latin Rite dioceses, and another six with bishops over 75. Some one is slipping up. Malone's former diocese of Portland has been vacant for 17 months. CF. Ed Peter's Canon Law Info. (Ed and I occasionally exchange e-mails. Now Slubecky, don't get jealous.)

SAVE ST. ANN’S – It is not a historic, Catholic and East Side building. It is a piece of our Buffalo identity. We still own it. The money needed to demolish it and secure a parking lot is enough to keep it going for more longer than people might be lead to believe.

The actual St Ann parish was a prolife stronghold for generations. Their position on prolife was more important than their building. The actual St Ann parishioners would never have sought support from proabortion newspapers or proabortion politicians. They would have tried to convert those reporters, not seek their guidance and support. If they were invited to speak to proabortion city council members, they would have used the opportunity to affirm prolife, and traditional marriage, if that were under attack.

Some people think that St. Ann’s Church should be demolished. Let them keep their opinion! We want our opinion to be tested through the wisdom and generosity of a lay committee which is committed to evangelization by treasuring our past. Once a beautiful building is go, it is gone forever. Buffalo has already shed too many tears for nothing.
